    Joker’s Oscar nominations are a joke: This movie is stupid!

    While it's fun to listen to him rant, I don't really disagree with him in terms of the film's content.

    I saw this last week. It's mainly just a vehicle for Phoenix (who is tremendously good) to show off what a great actor he is; the cinematography is far more stunning than it needed to be; the score is edgy and unsettling, it's interesting on its own and it also really supports the ambiance of the film; but man... does it actually say anything worthwhile about society that we didn't already know or have explored more deeply in other films, even films it is competing again? Not really. I enjoyed watching it but I wouldn't say it's something that contributed to my deeper understanding of its topical matters, inspired me with a vision, or anything else.

    It's just an engrossing one-off for DC -- arthouse meets pop culture but feels a lot more like style over substance, if you get my drift, if you dig underneath it to determine what it's contributing to anything.

    Geez. So shocked to see Star Wars not get a Film Editing Oscar nom. In fact, it only got a nom for one of the two sound awards instead of both, and visual effects and score I think.

    Happy that Frozen 2 did not get on the animation short list either. I watched it over the weekend. It started poorly, was kind of muddled and retconny, and while it ended better than it started and had a few high moments, I'm glad that the fact it was another Disney behemoth didn't auto-succeed it for the shortlist.

    I don't see Gerwig for a director nom, although at least Little Women got on the board in a few places.

    So no Lulu Wang, Melina Matsoukas, Greta Gerwig, Lupita N’yongo or J. Lo, even though Little Women got something. smh. No Uncut Gems either, which is very disappointing.

    Yeah, despite all the hubbub of changing the voter mix in the last few years, it all seems more of the same-old predictable selections. It seems even more apparent this year how much studio promotional gimmicks/advertising impacts what makes the ballot, in general.

    I was happy that Erivo got on Best Actress and that Parasite made Best Foreign and Best Pic, but otherwise? I'm also aware of a lot of great films and performances that just don't have the advertising budget to be seen by enough people to receive notice. There's a few films I cannot even find a rogue downstream of (like Malick's recent film) for viewing.

    I loved Joker and I think Joaquin Phoenix should win (even though Jonathan Pryce is also nominated and he was so wonderful as Francis but he's wonderful in any role) but the disaffected masculinity theme is creakily old and done (and that goes for Anthony Hopkins as Benedict, a thoroughly unlikable person who continues to confirm that belief, even today.) Class warfare, which is what Joker means to me, doesn't have some deeper meaning or bigger contribution, although it does force your empathy. I think there are people that really hate being made to feel that way, especially ones that subscribe to conservative values which are inherently anti empathy.

    I would prefer Parasite win best picture to Joker, Joaquin Phoenix for best actor and Cynthia Erivo for actress.

    Oscar nominations 2020: The best and the worst.

    I agree regarding the Joker screenplay. Eh.

    I like that Banderos is being recognized. His mainstream acceptance was mostly through large tentpole films (Zorro, Puss in Boots), but he's done a lot of great smaller work since, over the years... more daring work not playing directly into a persona or his physical attractiveness.

    I didn't see Bombshell. I did see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Robbie was great, mostly through her aura and without needing to say much. Like, it's hard not to love her and find her endearing. Was "Bombshell" that much better?

    I still have mixed feelings about Zellweger as Judy. I mean, it's not a hill worth dying on and it's not even her fault -- she channels Judy Garland without any seeming effort, and does a great job with the songs as well. But the script? It didn't really give her a lot to actually develop a deep character, I felt like I was just watching someone play Judy Garland without a story to help develop the character as effectively as possible. She had all the affectations and persona but I couldn't find a connection/throughline on it. (I guess that's still a testimony to her acting, maybe I'm just griping about the script. But that's why "Judy" I think didn't get any more attention.)

    I have mixed feelings on Mendes, who I really do love in general (I've always followed his films). There's a lot that goes into directing, including managing the efforts of so many people and resources. I also don't want to gripe about 1917 because I really enjoyed the film, but it's not in the top 2-3 war films I've seen (maybe not the top five?), and there's not a lot to it story-wise when you take a step back. Its strengths are amazing camera work (which both involve the camera maneuverability to emulate a continuous tracking shot, as well as hiding key features of the environment to create surprises / uncertainties) and the incredible personal "small story" feeling it engenders. (Mackay is good but I didn't think he would get a nom either compared to other performances this year, even if he was effective. Did anyone catch the casting of Dean-Charles Chapman and Richard Madden as brothers? What wonderful irony. They were both solid, btw.) I mean, I guess the directing award in part gets some kudos for especially demanding shoots and bringing a project through to completion.

    Maybe they'll get it for next year when they actually finish.

    This is a decent list of a lot of good films this year that did not receive a nomination. I've seen probably a third of them and at least another third are on my watchlist.

    I won't really get a complete list of my favorite 2019 films for awhile, I just cannot catch up and find most of the indie movies I want to see for that list since for me, I think the indie movement (filtering a bit into mainstream) was the best part of last year.

    Not really much interested in the Oscars this year. Most of the categories seem a lock and I'm not really excited over the BP race per se. While I enjoyed both Joker and 1917 (and both have been reaping a lot of awards/attention), I will be disappointed on some level if either is selected. I don't feel like Joker says anything substantial that we don't already know, and 1917 is enjoyable but pretty much centered around a trick (the emulated single tracking shot) while the actual content is more of a shadow of the great war movies of the last 30 years. They are worth watching but aren't really BP.

    Same thing with Jojo Rabbit -- I enjoyed my watch and it's well-done, but the problem is much of the film seems too preoccupied with being cute so as not to deal with the topical matter. I only really felt like the film understood the horrors during that scene with Stephen Merchant (which managed to be hilarious and terrifying all at once -- I wish more of the film had been that way).

    I'll be happiest if Parasite wins. I won't be bothered if Once Upon a Time in Hollywood grabs it, or Little Women (although I haven't seen the latter -- I've just heard such good things).

    I still have Uncut Gems on my list of next few movies to watch, although it was not nominated.

    I am happy to see Hildur Guðnadóttir picking up so many awards for her Joker score, though. It really is perfect. (Sorry, John Williams.) Fresh, raw, evocative, totally supporting the film it is part of. It's not surprising me to see so many awards being thrown at it.
